800: Bathams | Best Bitter

20220807_122713The brewery: “Bathams have become a family born to brew, with the  sixth generation now involved in creating and serving a legendary beer of the Black Country…..The company has continued to expand from that day in 1882 when Daniel Batham senior became the landlord of the White Horse in Cradley Heath. We think he would be proud to know that 137 years later in 2019 that Batham’s would be operating 11 pubs and supplying many more throughout the Black Country and beyond!”

The beer: “A straw-coloured bitter which initially seems sweet, but a complex dry, hoppy taste soon predominates.”

A little paler than I had in mind for a best bitter but it was nonetheless a nice drop and accompanied a great Sunday roast too.
